New 'Carbonite' characters in Angry Birds Star Wars II update

Published by at

It seems the Angry Birds updates keep flowing, into 2014 and for Windows Phone. Released today is an update for the Star Wars II variant, with '8 new playable characters' - at least once you've 'melted the frozen carbonite pack'. Ahem. That could take a while!

New pack

From the Store description:

What's new in version 1.3.0:
Melt the frozen CARBONITE PACK to get 8 NEW playable characters!

NEW CHARACTERS! Play as Carbonite Han Solo, Jabba the Hutt, Wicket the Ewok, Lando Bird, Royal Crimson Guard, Tusken Raider and more!

FREE TRIAL AND NEW TELEPODS! Try out all the new characters, then simply earn or purchase more! Or unlock them permanently with the new TELEPODS toys!

NEW REWARD LEVELS! Each character brings all-new levels!
